Licence Plate Recognition and Ticketless Parking System Solutions

Licence plate recognition is a technology that allows automated detection of vehicle registration plates. It is used for toll collection, traffic enforcement, vehicle identification, and, ultimately, as a ticketless parking system.

The technology, unlike traditional surveillance cameras that provide a broad field of view, are only used for the purpose of recording license plate information.

TPS use Fixed and Mobile LPR system technology to monitise car parks that do not have the infrastructure for a boom gated system.

The mobile technology uses cameras to capture images of vehicles and their licence plates. The images are then processed using specialised software that can identify the characters on the licence plate.

What is License Plate Recognition?

License plate recognition (LPR) is a technology that uses optical character recognition to read vehicle license plates. Typically, these systems consist of a camera and a computer to read license plates and the videos and images are then stored into data to read and analyse if required.

It can also be used for commercial purposes, such as automatic toll collection or ticketless parking system. In this case, the networked cameras are connected to smart applications that take action when recognizing a plate by notifying the parking enforcement agent, who then issues a payment notice.

How Does LPR Work?

Mounted cameras that use LPR technology only have accuracy of around 90%, resulting in 10% of parking revenue being lost. TPS uses mobile LPR technology operated by parking enforcement officers.

The parking enforcement agent scans number plates,which is then processed by an LPR system and its series of algorithms. This typically involves two main components: an image capture device and an OCR engine, converting the image into text.

The LPR system can define where on the vehicle the license plate is, and adjust the camera in order to capture optimal photos with balanced contrast and brightness.

At the same time, the character segmentation locates the text, translate it into alphanumeric text entry, and verify the information to trigger an action, for instance, opening a barrier gate.

The Benefits of Using an LPR System

There are many advantages to using an LPR system, including the ability to track stolen vehicles, deter crime, and improve traffic flow. TPS uses LPR technology to monitise parking in areas where a barrier system is not applicable.

High Accuracy Evidence Collection

LPR systems can capture vehicle license plate data with great accuracy, making them an excellent tool for parking owners to increase their revenue and enhance the experience of the customer.

Ease of Use

Using LPR is easy for both car park owners and customers. The LPR technology is used as a ticketless parking system and connected to a mobile app. This ultimately allows clients to pay for their ticket without having to stop at an automated machine.

For business owners, it is a great tool to ensure a seamless flow of cars and increase revenue.

Collecting Data

LPR is reliable: where mounted cameras only have accuracy readings around 90%, our mobile technology allows for readings of 97-99% accuracy.

It also enables pre-paid tickets or cashless transactions at entries/exits. The ability to reserve a parking space in advance and ensure the driver a smooth trip in and out.

The Different Features of License Plate Recognition

How to Choose the Right LPR system for Your Business

As a car park owner, there are a number of factors to consider when choosing an LPR system, including cost, features, and compatibility.

Cost is always an important consideration when selecting any type of business technology. LPR systems can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand, depending on the features and functionality you need. Contact us today to get more information and receive a personalised quote.

Features are another key consideration when choosing an LPR system. Some systems are very basic and only capture licence plate images, while others offer more advanced features such as automatic vehicle identification, database integration, and real-time alerts. Consider what features you need and make sure the system you select offers them.

Maintenance is also something to consider. How often will the system need to be serviced? If it's mounted in a difficult-to-reach location or subject to weather and grime, that could add to the costs.

If your parking area is outdoors, or in a location which would make a boom gate system unrealistic in enforcing parking restrictions, mobile LPR would be the best solution at increasing your parking revenue.


What Is A Licence Plate Recognition Parking System?

An LPR parking system is a type of technology that is used to identify and track vehicles by their licence plates. This system is typically used in parking lots and garages, and can be used to automatically issue parking tickets or track the movements of vehicles in and out of a facility.

How Does Licence Plate Recognition Work?

Licence plate recognition systems use special cameras to capture the images of licence plates, which are then processed by a computer. The computer reads the licence plate numbers and compares them to a database of registered vehicles. If a match is found, the system can issue a parking ticket or track the vehicle's movements.

How Accurate Are the Cameras on a Licence Plate Recognition System?

The cameras installed on an LPR are very accurate, and typically have licence plates reading accuracy of about 90%. However, the accuracy of TPS’ mobile technology is higher, around 97-99%
